Be a shame if she had to go out and get a real job. But then again, that's a forlorn hope since she's a grifter from a line of terrible people. She never had a chance to be anything but.

My wife and I move from there nearly 4 years ago. I almost wish I was there so I could vote against her.

An old coworker called the area "east Utah" and "too white and too right". Even Montana is more diverse.

It's like she isn't even campaigning now.  No car rides around the earth even filed.  Sheesh.

When she loses, she will refuse to accept the results, insist that the Democratic party cheated, and sue everyone everywhere forever.

Boebert strikes me as the sort to lose her re-election campaign and still show up to the capital complex and insist that she's still in office.

Democratic candidate in a tie with a Republican just before an election? That means the Republican wins by 5 percent.

No, something more like when she loses, she will refuse to accept the results, but during a press conference her drunk husband will stumble to the podium and attempt show reporters how he can reload an AK-47 using only his dick and a raw T-bone steak.  A fight will ensue, with Lauren's up-until-now unknown secret lover Hershel Walker getting inbetween Lauren and her husband before Hershel slips on some T-bone Steak drippings and, in one incredibly swift movement lasting 12 seconds, manages to fall on, penetrate, impregnate, and abort Lauren Boebert's baby.  He will then ask if anyone has a "Get well soon" card handy.

How are that many people undecided? She hasn't done a damn thing since she was elected. Right wingers of course support her despite that cause of stiggin it.  Come on undecided voters. Don't fark this up!

She's a danger to everyone.  In her current job she's trying to destroy democracy.  In her last job she gave hundreds of people a food borne illness.  What hell will she unleash on the unsuspecting public in her next gig?

Well, I had to check that and it was 71.4%.  Keep in mind, predicting a simple majority race is a lot easier than predicting an electoral vote race.  71.4 and 98 sounds close, but mathematically, 71.4% has 2/5 odds of an upset.  98% is 1/50.  https://www.aceodds.com/bet-calculator/odds-converter.html

That's generally not a big problem if you're from a Republican-leaning district. Folks don't want you changing things for them too much. What she does instead is incessantly flap her gums on culture war issues because she thinks that helps her build her profile for fundraising and Fox News appearances. The fact is it turns off as many donors as it entices, and it means she's at risk of offending her local voters who might lean Republican for economic reasons but aren't signed up to all the culture warrior bullshiat.

This election, many dozens of Republicans we never hear about will get re-elected by their districts without suffering much if any swing against them. Boebert will lose ground compared to last time because of what she says/does, not because of what she doesn't say/do.

I just don't understand how anyone can be an undecided in the age of Trump. Particularly after 1/6.

Except they didn't

538 only gave Hillary about a 2/3 chance of winning in their final pre-election analysis so Trump winning was well within the realm of possibility

Now that my coffee's kicking in, I think she was in the high 90's until the last week or so, then 538 went "ohcrapohcrapohcrap".

Depends -- if your mentality is that all you want from a government is petulance and stigginit, then she she's your candidate.

Otherwise, this is an approximate internet visualization of what exactly what Bobo accomplishes for the citizens of her district....

Not that I think the race is a tossup, but the 538 (and other websites making odds) are gonna be weighted on the fact  a generic GOP candidate can win with 50-60% of the vote. Boebert got 51% of the vote her first time out.
Could 2 years of being an embarrassment sway enough people to vote Dem/Ind/stay home?  Not sure about her appointments position but a quick view of his website shows he is trying to portray himself as a businessman first. Probably a good strategy vs a Boebert in a 50-60% GOP district

I remember 75%, and people think all polling is crap now because something that had a 1 in 4 chance of happening happened. I do think Trump brought in an era of a certain amount of poll responders lying out of spite.

We will never live in a timeline where some absolute reprobate pile of hog slop like this or mtg or trump isn't part of the process. This piece of trash will be followed by another piece of trash that's probably worse. But hooray for potential small victories.

My general philosophy regarding "undecided" voters is that 95% of them are closeted Republicans too embarrassed to say that they support the candidates, but too far right to ever vote for a Democrat.

The same phenomenon is in Georgia with Walker - sure they know he's a clown and a fool, but they'd sooner light their nuts on fire before ever voting for a Democrat.

I think a lot of pollsters assume undecided means roughly 50-50 and figure that X candidate is up or down by a few percentage points, and it gives campaigns false hope.
